CIBC Aventura Gold

The CIBC Aventura Gold credit card earns Aventura points on all purchases and is available to individuals in Canada.

Earning Rewards

The CIBC Aventura Gold credit card earns Aventura points for all purchases made on the card:

  • 2 Aventura Points for every $1 spent on travel purchased through the CIBC Rewards Centre.
  • 1.5 Aventura Points for every $1 spent on gas station, grocery store, and drug store purchases.
  • 1 Aventura Point for every $1 spent on all other purchases.

Redeeming Rewards

Aventura points can be redeemed for flight rewards; determine how many Aventura your next flight reward will cost you through the Aventura Points Flight Finder tool.

There can be decent value in redeeming Aventura for gift cards; stronger than 1 cent per point during specific promotions.

Aventura also gives cardholders the option to redeem points for a statement credit, however, this is a poor value compared to the other options available and should be avoided.


CIBC Aventura Gold cardholders receive a complimentary priority pass membership and 4 complimentary visits to airport lounges per year. These visits can be used for both the cardholder and their guests. Cardholders can enroll in the Priority Pass benefit here.

Cardholders are also eligible to receive up to a $50 statement credit when using their CIBC Aventura Gold card to apply for the Nexus program. Simply charge the application fee to your credit card to receive this rebate. Cardholders are eligible to receive this once every 4 years.

Insurance Coverage

The CIBC Aventura Gold credit card offers eight types of insurance coverage: emergency travel medical insurance, flight delay and baggage, auto rental collision and loss damage, common carrier accident insurance, hotel burglary, mobile device insurance, purchase security, and extended protection insurance.

Refer to the CIBC Aventura Gold certificate of insurance for additional details, including terms and conditions for eligibility.
